Benefits

Benefits are good things. We talk about a situation having benefits, for example, "the benefits of renting an apartment for a week vs. staying in a hotel." In terms of employment, benefits are the services that the company offers employees in addition to salary. These benefits typically include health insurance, discounts for things like child care or the gym, etc. The combination of benefits offered by a company is often called the benefits plan or package.
Benefit can also be a verb, defined as: to do good to; be of service to. For example, "we need a health program to benefit everyone."
